Covers: Shine

Thanks to my friend Don for the suggestion to write about this.

“Shine” was written in 1910.

Don wrote to me:

“I was just watching a Netflix documentary on Frank Sinatra and saw a clip with original sound.  There was a radio talent show, Major Bowes Amateur Hour (forerunner of Ted Mack of our generation.)  Sinatra auditioned as a solo but at show time was merged with “the Three Aces” a trio also from Hoboken.  They went on as the Hoboken Four and won.  That led to a national “tour” and the rest is history (sort of).”

Here’s an article from a Sinatra blog.
